Accredited Parliamentary Assistant

Accredited parliamentary assistants (abbr. APA) are chosen by a Member or a group of Members of the European Parliament to take care of the dirty work in their legislative activities. APAs’ prestige depends on the Parliamentarian they are working for. As such, it is in the APA’s interest to make so that their MEP is successful in their work and eventually gets re-elected, or they will suddenly be unemployed.

APAs dating trainees

A few days after their appointment, APAs grow a vertical blue badge that sparkles in every social event, playing a fundamental role in mating rituals with trainees and other wannabe Eurocrats. They also have the power to let you enter the European Parliament and invite you to exclusive party and group events, so try to be friendly with them.
